How to Make Data-Driven Decisions in Emergency Response
Did you know that D4H's incident reporting product has built in charts and graphs? They are split into Mapping, Incidents, Persons Involved, Exercises and Events.
Data visualization is an important part of the data analysis process. With D4H Incident Reporting, you can view charts and graphs that will help your team make important, data-driven decisions. Some of the charts that come built-in with your Incident Reporting account include: trauma location frequency by body part, exercise frequency by duration in hours, incident count by month, victims by age profiles, and many more! To access them go to the Intelligence tab and select ‘Charts’. Use the menu on the right side of the Charts page to navigate to different topics.
Not only can you view pre-built visualizations, you can also share select data with your community. Using the D4H API, you can pull data from your Incident Reporting account to show on the dashboard of your organization’s website in real time.
As data from D4H can be exported as .csv files, you can also easily import your data into visualization-specific programs like Tableau to make compelling infographics for your emergency response stakeholders.
